Fantastic customer service experience with Prima. Could not be happier with my corset, and I even received free (and speedy) alterations to ensure the perfect fit. I've been wearing my corset to work, in lieu of an underwire bra, and it's much more comfortable than regular "modern" undergarments in my opinion, not to mention extremely cute and elegant! If you are considering purchasing the Degas Everyday Corset, I would encourage you to do so.

I ordered this dress to wear to my niece's themed wedding. The fabrics were of high quality and the dress was beautifully made. I added a pearled headband, choker necklace and peacock fan to complete the look. I'm planning a costume party just so I can wear it again. Thank you for the fine craftsmanship!

I did try the shop...... She claims that's how she made the dress! The dress has a hole in the middle where the seam meets the lace and fabric..... There is also a small hole on the right side of the underarm area..... I don't understand why all she claims that's how the dress was made..... Paula
Beauty as refuge.
My best friend and I graduated at the same time, she in Sydney, Australia, and I in Amherst, Massachusetts. We both moved back to our hometown and looked at each other and thought, "What now?"
I graduated with a degree in dance, which I knew would be useless, but not...quite...this useless. What is an artist in a recession to do?
But Naomi had a plan. "Let's start Etsy shops together!" We thought, what the hell, we sew together all the time anyway, so we might as well put it online and see what happens. It felt just like when we were eight years old and decide to go exploring in the back yard. Run boldly into the unknown, green-kneed stockings notwithstanding.
Two and a half years later, I can't believe my luck. I'm awed that Etsy allows so many creative people, who don't always fit into the financial fabric of things, to be self-employed.
I sew from my studio in picturesque Brattleboro, Vermont. When I can't quite figure something out or a seam is being tricky, I take a break and go to the garden to rip out some weeds and let my mind wander. Somehow I get my best ideas when I'm outside and surrounded by the brilliant architecture of plants and animals. I want nothing more than to live a world where we are closer to the natural state of things, and I have ended up pursuing this dream from behind a sewing machine.
Somehow, it all makes sense.
